Wait... unless they're making ALL their cars 30 percent less crappy. Which would be a good thing.

I love the Maxima... their V6 is fantastic. But their transmissions suck ass.

If i had faith in their build quality, I'd buy one tomorrow. But, I don't... so I have an Acura.

How do you quantify the subjective?

Ambivalence: How do you quantify the subjective?


I mean, I was obviously kidding, but I suppose you could reduce the number of warranty visits and recalls. That sort of thing.

The cars will be 30% less crappy, or there will be 30% fewer of the fully-crappy cars?

I've been happy with both the Nissans I've owned.

Maybe the crappy cars will be 30% smaller?

Wouldn't that just increase the density of crappiness?

Ha ha, trollmitter.  It's not like you're going to get a whole lot of replies from people who have had great cars.  Including a manual 6-speed SPEC-V.  Just to keep the page clicks up?  Ha, as if.

You're not getting under anyone's skin with that transparent from-under-the-bridge nonsense, says this Billy Goat Gruff.  You're just embarrassing yourself.

Trawl for flotsam elsewhere.  I bet you're a Fjord guy yourself, or maybe you drive a Christler.

I rented a Murano a couple of years ago when I was on holiday in Canada and it was perfectly nice. There were a couple of features that seemed a bit crude. The parking brake was a big clunky foot brake, where my old Ford in the UK had a electronic parking brake that came on automatically and was a neat switch to release. Ditto the opener for the fuel filler, clunky mechanical thing on the Nissan but electronic thing on the Ford.
But overall it was a nice car. I'd happily buy one, except like most Nissans the thing is bug ugly. And the huge curved from wings (fenders to you Americans) made it difficult to judge the edge of the car, especially when boarding the ferry to Vancouver Island where you have to squeeze as close as possible to the wall.

Less crappy cars or fewer crappy cars?

I like the style of the new Sentra, but like you said, i wouldn't buy one. If they started offering a 10 year warranty or such, I'd might consider them.

As a T1 Nissan supplier I'm not getting a kick, etc.

I drive a Nissan and it's okay. I'd still pick Nissan before any European or American models (especially Chrysler, VW, BMW, Ford, Sabb, or Audi. Germans make nice cars but they are expensive to maintain and needlessly complicated.) Nissan's are more simply designed and easier and less expensive to work on, even if certain items are absolute trash (looking at you visors). I'm probably going to buy Toyota a going forward. I worked in a car shop 20 years ago. It was common to see badly maintained Toyotas still passing basic inspection with over 200,000 miles.

I'm on my second one in a row. First one went 12 years. But then I'm not completely stupid, and I get ones with manual transmissions.

30% less crappy would be pretty nice though.

I'll stand by my old Nissan Cube - I got 250,000mi out of it before the transmission gave up.  I ended up dumping because I wasn't about to drop $2,100 on a second-hand CVT.

Wow. I had no idea there were Nissan fanboys.

Subby, you made me see the light. I'll rush out and replace my crappy Frontier with a glorious Chevy.
